To Cook

To make the marinade: Mix together the mustards, honey, lemon juice, garlic and rosemary. Place the chops in a dish and pour over half the marinade. Reserve the rest to serve with the chops. Marinade the chops for 15 minutes if possible.

Meanwhile to make the salad: Cook the quinoa according to packet instructions. Drain and cool completely. Whisk together the lemon juice and oil and season with a little salt and black pepper. Toss the cooled quinoa in a bowl with the dressing. Then stir through the red onion, garlic, cucumber, tomatoes, olives, parsley and mint leaves. Taste and season.

To cook the chops: Heat the barbecue. Season the chops with a little salt and black pepper. Place on the barbecue for 2-3 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking.

Toss the peppers and red onions in a little olive oil, season and cook alongside the chops.

Serving Suggestions

To serve: Drizzle the remaining marinade over the chops and serve with the quinoa salad and roasted peppers and onions.
